, national politics, immigration, the presidential campaign of 2004, and 2008, and first lady michele obama and her role in the obama white house. i met rachel at an event this year where i bought a book, the book she wrote, "american tapestry: the story of the black, white, and multiracial ancestors of michelle obama". after hearing her talk, i'd bought six more copies. i bought them for all my family members and to give out as christmas gifts. now after having read her book i can tell you it was a good investment. it helps me better understand my own family and many mysteries surrounding my own family. rachel l. swams's book is a compelling story that stirs deep emotions. it is also a story that would break them here and with that, let's welcome rachel l. swams. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. >> thank you for coming. in the years leading up to the presidential election, the focus seems to be on barack obama's roots and his family and the fact that he wrote his own biography. now in your book "american tapestry," you put the focus on michele obama. tell us about how you got started do
with michele. >> michele: robert, you guys were 3-6. you've won seven straight and now the nfc east division title. what has been behind this streak? >> you know, it's just a mindset change. when you've got guys like this guy right here, pierre garcon, deangelo hall, all these guys coming to work every day, putting it on the line because we knew we couldn't afford to lose one game and we made sure we didn't. >> michele: on a night when you had 100 yards passing, this guy over here you alluded to, alfred morris, has 200 yards on the ground, three touchdowns. what does it mean to have a teammate who can pick up the load the way he did? >> i mean, it's awesome! if teams are going to try to take me away, he makes them pay every time, without a doubt, and it's only because of our offensive line. so, i can't go without mentioning those guys. they fight and claw so me and this guy can get all the glory. >> michele: your knee looked a little bit like it was giving you some troubles out there. as you get ready to have seattle come in here and play you next week, how do you think that knee's going to

for murder of michelle leon monday esteban was sentenced to 25-years-to-life without parole for murder in the first degree of the 26-year- old nursing studentwhose decomposed body was found in a remote area near the sunol pleasanton boarder on sept 17, 2011four months after she was first reported missing from a nursing program in haywardduring closing arguments the prosecution described esteban as a jealous woman whose hatred turned to ragebefore stalking and then ultimately killing lebecause she thought the nursing student was sleeping with the father of esteban's childand even though there were no witnesses to what happened to le. judge jon rolefson appeared to agree with the prosecutors argument. as he stated to the court >> "never have i seen a circumstantial evidence case that so clearly pointed to the guilt of someonethat showed no hint of remorse"words that resonated with le's sister >> "when he said that, he made a really good observationmade us feel we always felt that she felt no remorse. to see her directly with a blank stare and staring at our family. it was good that the p
? some say yes, others say no. what does michelle caruso-cabrera say. >> tyler, let's drill down to the numbers you were talking about. only four hours to go until america goes over the fiscal cliff. the dow jones industrial average down 113 points. had been down 148 points. look at that as we come on the air back above 13,000 level, not by much. the nasdaq, the biggest decline. 33 points. below 3,000 now at 2957. actually, hasn't been below 3,000 before that. s&p lower by 14 points. a decline of 1%. 1405 so holding onto the 1400 level. president obama is back at the white house. all eyes are on senate lawmakers now. amam jabbers is in washington. >> reporter: president obama did cut his vacation short in hawaii. he has arrived back at the white house this morning. the president emerging from marine one. what he's going to work on here in washington is pretty much anybody's guess at this point. the senate came back into session this morning and senate majority leader harry reid took to the senate floor to explain that he thought a $250,000 and above extension of the tax -- bush t

, john harris, kelly o'donnell, michelle caruso-cabrera and david ignatius with "the washington post." first up, will president obama convince republicans to give him a compromise that's big enough, sweeping enough to end this month on a high note? to cap off his election win and get a clean start on his second term. a victory for the president would look like this -- get that top income tax rate up. make minimal concessions on entitlement cuts and get it done before the end of this month, avoid that cliff. this week the president said talk on a partial deal on taxes alone will not cut it with him. >> there have been reports that perhaps the republicans go ahead and let the middle class tax cuts get extended, the upper income tax cuts go up, otherwise we don't get a deal and next year we come back. i have to just tell you, that's -- that is a bad strategy for america. it's a bad strategy for your businesses, and it is not a game that i will play. chris: he wants a pretty good deal, a lot of things in it. when he sits down in that room with he and boehner, it's come down to the two of
